Deals to snap up before 11th February.January 26, 2014 by The Co-operative Food
At your local Co-operative look out for some very tempting deals at Â£1, Â£2 and Â£3. Many more items are half price.
With a planned shopping list you can bring down the cost of your weekly shop, yet eat so well.
A favourite in our household is a roast gammon joint â€“ and you can buy either a smoked or unsmoked gammon at half price â€“ itâ€™s just Â£5 for a 1.1kg pack. Look back to the December JanuaryÂ Food Magazine for a super tasty recipe for a gammon joint with a citrus glaze â€“ itâ€™s a festive recipe, but tastes too good to only use at Christmas.
The gammon joint isnâ€™t the only meat deal though, look out for the pork leg joint which is half price at Â£3.79, itâ€™s ideal for a Sunday roast, and then thereâ€™s a veg deal with many of your lovely seasonal winter veg at just a pound.
And hereâ€™s a little tip if you like garlic, we always pop a few unpeeled cloves of garlic around the roasting tin, but if a few are out of the juices and look a bit dry and shrivelled after roasting, try one whole. The skinâ€™s papery anyway, and the garlic inside will be sweet and tangy.
Itâ€™s Chinese New Year on Friday 31st of January to celebrate the start of Year of the Horse â€“ create your own Chinese feel at home with The Co-operativeâ€™s stir fry kits. You can pick up a pack of noodles, a sauce and a pack of stir fry veg for just Â£3, and at the moment you can buy a twin pack of diced chicken breast for just Â£3. Use one side now, and pop the other in the fridge or freezer for later. You can have a tasty stir fry served in minutes, with or without the chicken.
There are also Sharwoods oriental sauces, noodles and prawn crackers all at just a pound.
Have you ever cooked a tagine? You donâ€™t need the funky looking pot with its hat shape for the first time you try it, any large oven dish with a tight fitting lid will do. A tagine is a North African dish rich with spices, fruits and meats and fills your home with an amazing smell as itâ€™s cooking. It came to mind as I was looking at the chicken deal and wondering what Iâ€™ll cook this week with the skinned and boneless thighs that are half price at just Â£2.25. Half price chicken is something Iâ€™ll always snap up as itâ€™s so versatile. The good thing when you buy fresh from The Co-operative you know itâ€™s always higher welfare British meat.
Thereâ€™s always a good wine deal at The Co-operative and right now you can buy Signal Post shiraz or chardonnay. These south east Australian wines are good on their own, or with a meal. The shiraz will certainly go well with the roast Iâ€™m planning.
Pizza is a favourite in almost every household, and itâ€™s certainly an easy meal to fall back on. There are a couple of The Co-operativeâ€™s Loved By Us deep pan pizzas in the fridge right now â€“ well, at Â£2 each it would seem rude to miss them.
